      Tasting Notes
      Domaine de Ventenac is found about 10km north of Carcassonne in the appellation of Cabardes which, because of its location between f the Massif Cantral on one side and the Pyrenees on the other, enjoys a climate which is an interesting mix of Mediterranean and Atlantic influences ensuring ideal conditionsfor growing all sorts of grape varieties.

      Maison Ventenac proposes original, unique wines, always remaining true to the same principle : respect for the grape and its organoleptic qualities. All our production benefits from the same focus on quality, from our Pays d’Oc PGI cuvées all the way up to our premium Cabardès PDO wines.

      Resolutely militant, and just a little bit of an anarchist, our “Dissidents” and “Païens” ranges express what we believe to be the very soul of Maison Ventenac, without any form of constraint, cultivating our finest plots of land in the most natural way possible, classifying our soils in order to better define them, selecting and creating our wines as we see fit. Here, there is no make-up, just delicate blends concocted in jars of 150 or 500 litres, and in casks of 2,000 litres. These wines are uncompromising, chiselled, precise and direct. An uppercut – but the good sort! One that wakes you up and tells you that not everything is standardised and uniform, but can be unique.

      Paul - Paul is all about tenderness. Tenderness in the terroir where the vine grows, the tenderness of the cooked earth which forms the amphorae where the wines age, the tenderness of the parents for the child who is growing up.
      Signed, Paul's parents.

      "Made from 100% Cabernet Franc brought up in foudre and amphora, the 2015 Vin De France Paul tastes like a Loire Cab Franc on steroids. Giving up lots of black cherry, blackcurrants, spring flowers, pepper and hints of herbs, it’s medium to full-bodied, has good acidity, lots of jammy fruit and a good finish. It’s going to be interesting to see how this comes together, but it’s certainly an interesting red that has ample potential.
      89-91 Points."
